MANILA, Philippines – Sisi Rondina can win her first UAAP indoor volleyball championship in front of people closest to her heart. 

UST and Ateneo supporters are chipping in monetary help to have Rondina’s family fly from Cebu to Manila to watch her play in Game 2 of the Season 81 finals at the Mall of Asia Arena on Wednesday, May 15. 

Rondina was magnificent in leading the Tigresses to a dominant sweep of the Lady Eagles in Game 1 with 23 big points, but her family unfortunately was not able to see her in action live.

This prompted the outpour of support, and UST professor Faye Martel revealed in a Facebook post that there are efforts to bring the star Tigress’ family to Manila. 

It’s not just for Rondina, though, as the families of veterans Alina Bicar and Dimdim Pacres are also set to witness them play live. 

Rondina expressed gratitude for the supporters through Twitter. 

Because of my priority, ‘di ko sila mapanood live pero malalaman ko ginawan niyo ng paraan. Paano po ako magpapasalamat?,” she wrote.

(Because of my priority, I cannot afford to have my family watch live and now all of you found a way. How can I thank all of you?) 


UST can nail its first UAAP women’s volleyball crown since 2010 as it seeks to close out Ateneo in the best-of-three affair. Rappler.com
